Where We Work: Jordan
We provided youth development solutions in Jordan with the launch of Youth for the Future in 2009.
Thanks to building more than 70 partnerships here, we succeeded in working across sectors to support the country’s underserved youth. With a deep local understanding complemented by mastery of global best practices, our initiatives in Jordan have provided more than 14,000 young men and women with life and job skills training, career guidance, and entrepreneurship support. The result is a more optimistic, integrated young workforce better prepared to win in-demand jobs and create new ones. In addition, BADIR, a member of the YouthActionNet® global network, has nurtured young Jordanian leaders by preparing them to strengthen and grow their social entrepreneurship ventures. As one of our many research efforts here, the Global Youth Wellbeing Index includes Jordan.
